Ibiza #2: Dalt Vila & Sa Talaia

ENG
Our first day on Ibiza brought us a little surprise... rain! I literally hadn't seen rain since April, and it decided to show up in August, on Ibiza, on the vacation! Anyway, we didn't want to just stay in the hotel or something, we decided to drive to Ibiza town and visit a famous castle, called Dalt Vila. It was actually a good time to visit it and climb it's little narrow streets without sun, because it wasn't hot at all and the rain eventually stopped. Dalt Vila meas "Upper Town" and it was constructed for Philip II of Spain as an important strategic and defensive point in the second half of the 16th century. It was supposed to protect the island from France and the Ottoman Empire. Nowadays it is the only fortification in Europe which is preserved as whole, together with the one in La Valetta, in Malta.
Sa Talaia, with its 475m, is the highest mountain on Ibiza and fifth on Balearic Islands, and its name means "watchtower" on Catalan. We saw the sign for it on our way back and although it's totally worth it, because the views and nature up there are breathtaking, the way up was kind of creepy. We were alone in the forest, climbing terrible roads, there were no sign of anyone, only one van following our car, I felt like in a horror movie, and actually thought that it was following us, but it disappeared at some point and we were safe :P I felt such a relief when we got back to the civilization! :D

Nuestro primer día en Ibiza nos trajo una sorpresa... la lluvia! Creo que no había visto ni una sola gota desde Abril y decidió aparecer justo en mis vacaciones, en agosto, en Ibiza! Pero bueno, no fue tan mal porque al final dejó de llover y aprovechamos el día sin calor para visitar la ciudad Ibiza o Eivissa y su famoso castillo, Dalt Vila, cuyo nombre significa "ciudad alta". Fue construido para Felipe II en la segunda mitad del siglo XVI como un punto estratégico importante que se suponía que protegía la isla de los ataques de Francia e Imperio Otomano. Ahora es la única fortificación que se mantuvo entera en Europa, junto con la de La Valetta, en Malta.
Sa Talaia, con su altura de 475 m es el pico más alto de Ibiza y quinto en las Islas Baleares. Vimos la señal para el pico en nuestro camino de vuelta y decidimos visitarlo. Aunque merece mucho la pena por sus vistas y naturaleza increibles, el camino daba un poco de miedo. No había nada ni nadie, solo bosque y caminos horribles y de repente apareció una furgoneta que nos seguía y me sentí como en una película de miedo jaja! La furgoneta desapareció en algún momento y estábamos a salvo :P Sentí tanto alivio cuando volvimos a la civilización! :D

Prvi dan na Ibici nam je doneo iznenađenje... kišu! Bukvalno nisam videla ni kap kiše, čini mi se od aprila i odlučila je da se pojavi baš kad sam otputovala, u avgustu, na Ibici! Baksuz! :P Ipak, nismo hteli da gubimo dragoceno vreme i odlučili smo da se odvezemo do glavnog grada, koji se takođe zove Ibica, i posetimo čuvenu tvrđavu, zvanu Dalt Vila, i to bez vrućine, a kiša je u nekom trenutku prestala. Dalt Vila znači "gornji grad" na katalonskom i sagrađena je za vreme vladavine Filipa II u drugoj polovini XVI veka kao važna odbrambena građevina koje je trebalo da zaštiti ostrvo od napada Francuske i Otomanskog cartsva. Danas je zajedno sa tvrđavom u Valeti na Malti, jedina evropska tvrđava koja je ostala netaknuta.
Sa Talaia (na katalonskom znači "kula osmatračnica") je sa visinom od 475 m najviši planinski vrh na Ibici, a peti na Balearskim ostrvima. Videli smo znak za njega na putu nazad i odlučili da ga posetimo. Iako stvarno vredi zbog neverovatnog pogleda i prirode, nije mi je baš bilo prijatno. Naš auto je bio jedini, zapravo nije bilo ničega osim ogromne šume i užasnih putova, kada se odjednom pojavio neki kombi i počeo da nas prati. Osećala sam se kao u nekom horor filmu, scenarijo je bio tako tipičan, ali srećom i naravno, prikolica je u nekom trenutku nestala i otišla svojim putom i ipak smo bili sigurni :P Da vam ne pričam kakvo sam olakšanje osetila kad smo se vratili u civilizaciju! :D


Raindrops are falling on my... car :P





























Our horror adventure was worth it in the end :P







Safe and sound :D

  13. Koje fantastične fotografije...oblačno vrijeme i kiša često rezultira sa zanimljivim i dinamičnim fotografijama kao u ovoj slučaju, pa eto barem da za nešto posluži.

    Jako mi se sviđa ovaj šorc sa čipkom, ležeran, a opet malo i neobičan, baš lijepa kombinacija.

    Nisam znala o ovoj tvrđavi, baš zanimljive informacije, mene povijest uvijek zanima...obično kad podsjetim neko mjesto i ja volim malo istražitivati njegovu povijest tako mi bude zanimljivije.

    pozdrav!

    1. Isto kaže i moj muž :) Da, sve je dobro dok ne pljušti kiša ;)
      Hvala ti puno, drago mi je da ti se sve sviđa, i ja volim istoriju i da znam uvek makar neki detalj o novom mestu koje vidim pa sam htela da podelim i ovde ono što je najvažnije i najzanimljivije i dopunim priču sa slika :)
